AWARDS CATEGORIES

CELEBRATE  THE  BALTIC  FRONT-RUNNERS  IN  SUSTAINABILITY  INNOVATION  

Rimi Baltic Sustainability Awards celebrate the innovators, changemakers, and leaders in sustainability. We aspire to highlight and honor the brightest minds and leading-edge achievements in sustainability innovation. The Awards bring together Baltic business leaders, GreenTech startups, organizations, and aspiring individuals to salute their triumphs and innovations in sustainability. 

Applications for the Rimi Baltic Sustainability Awards are now closed and the Jury has selected three finalists in each subcategory.  The winners will be announced during the Awards ceremony at the Future Forum conference on Dec 9. 

IMPACT

When it comes to sustainability, we all play our part. For Impact nominees, we are looking for achievements by various type of organizations at reducing their negative impact on the environment. May it be a new internal process, product revision, or dropping a feature, it all comes down to the impact. Options are endless and individual; ergo, the Impact category has three sub-categories.   

FOR:
Large enterprises
SMEs
NGOs & Public Sector

INNOVATION

It's time we realize the potential innovation and technology have when it comes down to sustainability. GreenTech startups are solving some of the most burning global challenges, while enterprises themselves are developing industry-disrupting solutions. In this category, we welcome cutting-edge innovations from both startups and enterprises.

FOR:
Enterprises
Startups
